Not only does Toronto have to pick up at least $2.5 mil of Phaneuf's salary, we get Sarnia too.
 
Final offer.


And they have to take Flint in the trade.

Phaneuf next?


I've been saying we were one power forward and one top D-man away from being a serious contender so if Kenny can somehow work magic and not give up a lot then our team becomes a favorite over night in my eyes.

I agree it was a good trade, I just knew people would be mad. And they are.


The difference this year is not everyone is mad like they were last year with the Legwand deal.

Nope, I just realize you have to give up something in a trade to get something back. Cole is a rental. We all know this going in. The team is preparing for a playoff run. We gave up next to nothing in this deal. The 2nd rounder holds more value than either of the two prospects, really. They are 2 long shots and being impact NHLers. Such players hold little trade value. 

Yea the 2nd rounder hurts a little but getting back a 3rd makes it alot better. Especially when Chicago had go give up a 1st for Vermette. We didn't give up our 1st or any of our top Forward or Defensive prospects to get a player that rounds out our top 6. Amazing deal.

Here comes all the complainers of the trade. The same people who complain when Holland does nothing. We gave up 2 deeper prospects and a pick for a power forward and a pick. Sure the players we trade could come back to bite us but odds are they won't amount to anything rather than being superstars one day. We got a 18 goal scorer who will be killer in front of the net on the power play and what many were saying was the 2nd best forward available at the deadline. Great work Kenny!
